Rocky Mountain Health Care Services will begin renovations next month on a 60,000-square-foot building on Pikes Peak Avenue. The building was the former location of Doctor’s Hospital and Eisenhower Hospital.
“The new and larger space will allow us to better serve the community and be more centrally located in town,” RMHCS President and CEO Tom Reiter said. “We are thrilled to help more participants stay independent in the community and see this project take flight.”
The building, located at 2502 E. Pikes Peak Ave., should be operational by April 2015. RMHCS serves more than 5,500 clients in El Paso and Teller counties each year.
The new space will allow the 38-year-old local nonprofit organization to expand its mission of serving seniors and those with brain injuries. A medical clinic, rehabilitation unit, day health center, art classrooms, residential area, outdoor living area and commercial kitchen will operate at the new location.
RMHCS is the parent company of Rocky Mountain Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, (or PACE,) BrainCare, HealthRide and Rocky Mountain Options for Long Term Care. For more information please visit rmhcare.org.
